Eliminating ZDHC MRSL chemicals – and going even further

Our low impact Stahl Neo® portfolio covers the entire tanning and finishing of leather process. Not only are the products compliant with the ZDHC MRSL list, Stahl has gone further by excluding other substances like formaldehyde, toluene, xylene, DMF and PFC, from its portfolio, plus substances listed in REACh Annex XIV and SVHC.


Phasing out restricted substances by 2020

Stahl Neo® is the latest evolution of our portfolio of products to help tanners meet the 2020 ZHDC goals, and it covers both leather finish and wet-end leather operations.

As the world’s leading manufacturer of leather processing chemicals, the move to zero discharge of hazardous chemicals is a trend we enthusiastically support as we push for a transparent and sustainable supply chain. Stahl Neo® entails a complete portfolio of leather processing products that is compliant with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL), and also designed to be free of additional substances, not on the ZDHC list going further than the guidelines currently require.
